Tropical Storm Erika Advisory #1, Friday, August 28, 2015 - 1:50 p.m. All Miami Beach residents and businesses are strongly encouraged to check their hurricane preparedness kits, review their family emergency plans, and remain informed during hurricane season.
As a reminder, Miami Beach is an evacuation zone, as such plan in advance where you will stay, how you will get there, and what supplies you will take in case an evacuation is issued. Also, give yourself ample time to get to a safe area. For more information on how to prepare, go to our Hurricane Information Center. Other Storm Surge Simulator is a new online tool that is designed to help you evaluate your vulnerability to storm surge -- but it should not be used to determine if you should evacuate. Always follow the protective actions issued by emergency officials. If an evacuation is ordered and included the City of Miami Beach, you should initiate your evacuation plan and leave the city.
